's bring in our "news nation" political panel today. john harwood and zachary ca caribel. thank you, gentlemen, for joining me. john, i want to come to you first because i want to play what president obama and governor romney said just a short time ago reacting to the jobs reports. let me play those first, both of them. >> there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month, and the unemployment rate as you noted this year has come down very, very slowly. it's come down nonetheless. the reason it came down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> so john harwood, before we talk about this back and forth, i want to talk about the psychological impact of the rate falling below 8% today. >> it's positive for obama and say that the rate is where it was when i took office. i don't think we should be under any illusions. 7.8% is a high unemploy
. and in the next hour, jared bernstein and tony fratto. our guest host this morning is fx concepts chairman john taylor. after we hear the number at 8:30 eastern time, we'll talk about what the news means for the obama and romney campaigns. our ges both served as chairman of the economic advisers. austan goolsbee and ed lazear under president obama. but first this morning's headlines. >>> you wanted music but you didn't pick this? >> no but it didn't bother me until you started mocking it. >> she want us just to talk, no music. >> let's get to spain and its finance minister. sparking laughter from an audience in london today, why he told a group of academics that his country doesn't need a bailout at all. that's interesting. the minister is arguing that madrid's reform program right now is already sufficient to stave off a full sovereign bailout and the ecb's bond buying program would suffice. to help spain recover. that's apparently how it started, with -- you can imagine -- that's bad for confidence of the minister of spain where he's telling an audience, we don't need a bailout and then you h
strategist julian epstein and john harwood, chief washington correspondent and political writer for "the new york times." julian, so, the bureau of labor statistics is now to be lumped in with false memory syndrome, satanic abuse, and the abduction of children byu fos in terms of its accuracy and trustworthy iness? >> we've talked about the archie bunker wing of the waert. now we have the paranoid paranormal wing of the party. this is the same group of people that don't believe in evolution. this is the same group of people that don't believe in climate change. these are the same people who are complaining about the poll numbers being biased, and now they're complaining about a methodology that is very open and transparent and that has been used for decades in terms of computing the employment numbers. and, you know, this is to democrats this is music to our ears. when you start complaining about the polls and you start complaining about employment number methodology, it's a very, very clear sign that the other side is losing the debate and they have to go to these kind of, you know, bush le
both of them, senator john mccain joins me. >> frankly, i didn't expect the president to do that poorly. >> he knows when to hold them and when to fold them. ♪ know when to walk away and know when to run ♪ >> the legendary kenny rogers, taking on politics -- >> in all fairness i really wanted obama to be a great president. >> and talking about his music and his love life. oh, s, and we sing a duet. ♪ islands in the stream ♪ that is what we are >> this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> we begin with tonight's big story with just 32 days before the election, the new jobs report numbers are out and they are shaking up the race again. the unemployment rate fell to 7.8%, the lowest since january 2009, when president obama was inaugurated. he is hoping the new numbers will bring him a second term. he and governor romney know the election's all about the economy and both men were trading jabs today in the battleground state of virginia. >> today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too
have john roberts following the campaign with governor romney but wendell is covering the president's campaign from cleveland. the numbers could help the president at a very crucial time. >>reporter: they could. the 114,000 jobs created last month was a modest increase but the drop in the unemployment rate came from a different survey, something called a household survey that indicates a lot more people found park time jobs or were working out of their home which is a huge increase in that number, some economists called it an anomaly. mitt romney said this is not what a real recovery lobs -- looks like. >> today's news is not an excuse to talk down the economy to score political points. it is a reminder this country has come too far to turn back now. >> the president speaking in the battle ground state of virginia with one of the few places he has been to more than ohio where he is right now. >>trace: it was not all about the economy, launching a new health care attack on governor romney. what do we know about that? >>guest: he did. it is perhaps because the economy is not doing as
among them, when john roberts voted and you write in the book and i want to read, this is out of the book, quote, by demanding that roberts kill our entire health care law, the four conservative justices prompted them to look for some kind of middle ground. roberts felt obligated to protect the institutional interests of the court, not just his own philosophical agenda. now, doing that, he uncost merrily went against the conservatives, members of the court. >> he certainly did and count me among those who are shocked and predicted wrongly. justice sees himself as the chief justice, as the embodiment of the court and after citizens united, after bush v. gore to do it a third time in a relatively short period of time would have damaged the court and romney found that middle ground under the taxing power of congress and he upheld the law but don't think that john roberts has suddenly. >> a mentor of mine said, be when he said that, he did not find it, they had the right to deal with interstate commerce. >> right. >> but that they could deal with tax law, most of the civil rights

to redistribute -- >> hold on a second, john. jump in here for a minute. let me talk about this fight for the middle class here because both candidates want it, but it really seemed in the past few days since the debate, that mitt romney lit up to say it's working for barack obama, i'm going to make it work for me. >> would he seriously borrow a position from someone else? >> they want it because they need it. you don't get elected unless you appeal to moderates an the middle class. that's why the 47% comment hurt so much. that's why the poll numbers started breaking hard against him when it started really resognating through the heart land. he had a great debate. he's got an opportunity to do that. >> so, he should just clear that off the table. >> some of those problems are baked in his cake. >> jamal, jump in here. if you're a democrat in this country, not thrilled to see him suddenly approaching so hard in this area, but barack obama was kind of playing him a little bit, but seriously, i'm not sure if mitt romney may have said middle class more than obama. >> you know, what john j
he was debating john kerry. the problem with that george w. bush conspiracy theory of course was always that john kerry absolutely destroyed george w. bush in that debate when bush was supposedly wearing a listening device. so if he was wearing a listening device whoever was supposedly whispering in the president's ear was not whispering things that helped him. that's always the part i didn't understand. but the 2012 version of that theory now is that mitt romney cheated in the debate against president obama this week not by having somebody feed him the answers through an ear piece but rather by bringing the illegal crib sheet on to the debate stage with him. you see, previous debate rules have set out very clearly that, quote, no props, notes, charts, diagrams, or other writings or other tangible things may be brought into the debate by any candidate and yet have a look at this damning evidence. this is at the very beginning of the debate on wednesday night and as you'll be able to see clearly here what is that in your pocket? mr. romney very clearly pulls something from his

correspondent john roberts is live from st. petersburg, florida, today. that's where we find governor romney. he will hold a rally there later today. what about the aspect of truth of issue in this campaign, john? >> reporter: oh, this is turning out to be a real battle between taxes and the truth, martha. let's handle taxes first of all. governor romney on the stump is insisting his 20% across the board reduction in tax rates would benefit and middle class and small business would give them very needed tax break, at the same time closing loopholes for wealthiest americans would assure they pay the same amount of taxes. the rally in fishersville, virginia, big rally, attended by thousands of people, he insisted president obama's plan to raise taxes on people more than $250,000 would be a job killer. here is what he said. >> he talk as about stimulus. talks about hiring more government workers. talks about the government making investments and of course he talks about raising taxes. vice president blurted out the truth today. they plan on raising taxes on the american people and that well kill jo

, john kerry out-raised president bush, and we all know how that turned out. so i think, you know, yes, he raised a lot of money. the president, or, excuse me, governor romney has raised $12 million since wednesday. so it's been a shot in the arm for the romney campaign too. >> and that's online as well. >> it's 60% -- >> we're not talking about major donors. we're talking about people who saw his debate and liked what they saw. >> 60% of them are new donors. so i think the romney campaign is very pleased with this. and what you saw tuesday night in the debate, you took the money off the table, you had the president and governor trromney speaking unfiltered to the people, and people really liked what they heard from mitt romney. >> but some people might not consider exactly what mitt romney said as unfiltered. take a listen to what he said about cutting taxes for people during the republican primary compared to what he said on wednesday. let's play back two clips, so take a listen. >> nouumber one, i said today tt we're going to cut taxes on everybody across the country, by 20%, includ
hundred dollar fine and sit through a day-long john school. >> these are the simple consequences that you get. we, on the other hand, go to jail. we go to prison. we are victimized over and over and over again. >> reporter: the men listened as survivors describe the physical abuse, the humiliation, the reality of what these women call the life. >> by the age of 18, i had been stabbed, i had been kidnapped, raped numerous times, shot up with heroin. >> reporter: joy friedman, herself a teen prostitution survivor, runs the john school. her message? buyers, sellers, all are part of the problem. >> til you pick up the phone and call it, tell you open your car door, no harm happens to me, okay? no violence comes to me. you are the biggest part. the solution to this problem. >> reporter: those on the front lines, like sergeant grant snyder of the minneapolis police, agree. do you think laws have to come down harder on the buyers, the people who are putting the money out? >> i think so. i think we need to treat the men that are clients of women in the sex trafficking industry as part of the cons
community provided to me. a group of republicans led by senator john mccain responded quickly saying either the obama administration is misleading congress and the american people or it is blaming the entire failure on the intelligence community. we go to a fox news alert for you right now. a hook-handed, one-eyed terrorist suspect is on a plane head to the united states to face charges. sounds like a cartoon. abu al masri headed to the united kingdom. they wanted to open a training camp in the hills of oregon. he lost both his hand and an eye back in the early 1990 while waging jihad in afghanistan. if al masri is convicted he he probably will not face the death penalty. that was part of the deal with england when they helped extradite him. in just a few hours, the navy's newest warship will be commissioned here in new york city. the u.s.s. michael murphy is named for long island native. murphy was killed during ambush in 2006. dispit despite being shot he left a safe spot and ran into the line of fire in order to call for help. it has a crew of about 300 and will be stationed in hawaii. a
: what are the benefits like? caller: decent. host: you start monday -- john, tallahassee, florida is up next, hello. caller: hello, how are you doing? host: fine, thank you. caller: when you take all the jobs overseas, we cannot go overseas and work. that means someone will be unemployed. i think we need to make a demand of the entire planet and work towards creating the supply. i also think they should focus more on helping the small businesses -- financing small businesses which is creating more jobs than big business. i also would like to say that there is a lot of repetition in this universe. all the seasons repeat themselves every year. it is impossible to find anything that does not have the same basic repetition. that proves what goes around comes around. host: how does that apply to what we're talking about? caller: we must treat each other fair in order for fairness to come back. you cannot go against universal principles to make progress. host: when you look at the breakdown of types of jobs that saw growth and a reflection of the numbers released yesterday, the breakdown in "
. look at these interviews. congressman alan west, senator john mccain both on cnbc. here we go. >> i know. >> you are alleging specifically that the president is engaging in a cover-up of the data. you are saying that the administration is actively manipulating that data. correct? >> well, absolutely. >> frankly, i am not enough of an economist to question exactly what those numbers are. our discussion about the warren act that just took place where there are blatant violations of the law, i wouldn't put anything past this administration. >> you know, these are sitting members of congress. >> yeah. >> alan west won, of course. we know his party. he's very conservative nap said, john mccain. are you surprised by his comments? >> i'm very surprised by his comment. all of those comments, they're not just deeply irresponsible, but without a shred of evidence they are casting doubt about a very important number in our economy. now, if you understand the way the bureau of labor statistics collects data, and i used to work for the department of labor, and i used to work for the executive of
♪ >> nice to meet you. hey, can i call you joe? >> you can call me joe. >> john mccain has been dead wrong. i love him. as my mother would say, god love him, but he's been dead wrong on the fundamental issues relating to the conduct of war. >> i would like more opportunity for this. i like being able to answer these tough questions without the filter even of the mainstream media kind of telling viewers what they've just heard. >> no one in the united states senate has been a better friend to israel than joe biden. >> i may not answer the questions the way that either the moderator or you want to hear, but i'm going to talk straight to the american people and let them know my track record also. >> that was four years ago. the next vp debate is thursday night. working on the roundtable we'll preview that in just a little bit. peggy noonan, paul krugman, jon karl, mary matalin and james carville. the unemployment numbers that came out friday. i got to say, peggy, i was surprised first thing at "gma," the numbers come out, the first tweet you get from jack welch raising a question about them.
ready for the next session, next debate, hoping his mum carries over next week. >> john harwood is cnbc's chief washington correspondent. thanks for being here. i don't know if it's possible to strip politics away from these new unemployment numbers, but if you can, explain, does the president get credit for these numbers coming down, and how real are they? >> well, the president gets credit or blame for whatever the economic conditions are on his watch. these are numbers that are better than they've been, but they're still not good numbers. 7.8% is a high unemployment rate. we've got an economy that's not growing very fast. but it's certainly good news for the president to be able to say that 7.8%, the rate when i took office, we're back down there again. but i think people make too much political impact of these jobs numbers, because they don't need a government statistic to tell them how they feel about it. >> but then you have somebody influential like jack welch who tweets something suggesting these numbers are cooked. every expert seems to suggest that would be impossible. what's
economic plan. john roberts is live. romney is seizing on the momentum. how are the voters responding out there? >> the voters are responding to the governor. this event will be tonight. the entertainment is just warming up six hours before the actual appearance. the governor did debate prep in anticipation of a week from tuesday's all important second presidential debate. in the meantime traveling the i-4 corridor in this area. split in 2008 and yesterday in peterson and tampa bay area where president obama took both counties four years ago and the government hitting on thes between himself and the president this weekend. >> he for instance is going to raise taxes and his vice-president blurted out the truth. they plan on raising them trillion and it is two trillion when you put it together. that is an increase on taxes in maul business and that will mean less jobs. >>> and in the meantime obama campaign continues to hit mitt romney on the idea of being dishonest and nigh add out there saying he was not for a five trillion tax cut he was lying about that as he was when he said the presid
. >>> an explosive warning from the president. on this day back in 1961, president john f. kennedy urged all americans to protect themselves from potential atomic fallout with the soviet union by building bomb shelters. just one year later, his fears came to fruition when the cuban missile crisis erupted and the world was on the brink of a full-scale nuclear war. >> this government, as promised, has maintained the closest surveillance of the soviet military buildup on the island of cuba. within the past week, unmistakeable evidence has established the fact that a series of offensive missile sites is now in preparation. the purpose of these bases can be none other than to provide a nuclear strike capability against the western hemisphere. >> today, with natural disasters and new threats by terrorism, traditional u.s. civil defense is involved in the protections of emergency management and homeland security. coming up, celebrity endorsements. do they really make a difference to voters? a new poll has the answer. >>> and if pollsters are correct, michele bachmann could be in danger of losing he
didn't do as much prep as he might have -- all the prep was against john kerry channeling the mitt romney we've seen for the last five years. >> what's interesting, mika -- >> we ought to be looking at that. >> we have steve schmidt on yesterday. steve schmidt would call me during the 2008 campaign. and it used to drive him crazy, and the mccain campaign crazy, about how arrogant the obama team was. he was, like, they don't respect us at all. he'd go, why -- you know, they don't think we have anything. and that was the attitude that they set forth. and i've just got to believe also there was a huge level of overconfidence going into that romney debate. kind of like the dukakis team had in 1988, that they were the smartest people on the planet, and they looked down on the waters and the great unwashed, and i think maybe he was in shock that mitt romney came out and was effective as he was. >> or maybe they felt and maybe rightfully so, they didn't really need the debate as much as they thought they did. >> maybe they listened to donny. >> but i want to know, mark halperin, what you
